Modern Barn Wedding at Stonefields

Modern barn wedding at Stonefields

Britt and Evan were married on the front lawn of the Stonefields Inn on a warm Spring afternoon!

I first met Britt at her sister’s wedding at Otter Lake two years ago, where we became instant friends! So when I say that this is a wedding I’ve been looking forward to for a long timeI truly mean years! 

Since that time, I’ve seen Britt and Evan at their Waterfront Engagement Photos on a Private Island, and also spent time with Britt and her closest ladies at her Blush Floral Wedding Shower a few weeks ago! Toss in a coffee date and some regular back-and-forth emails and it was clear that Britt and Evan’s wedding would be more than a modern barn wedding at Stonefields – it would be a celebration with friends!

When Britt and Evan first told me they’d chosen Stonefields as their wedding venue,  I was just as excited as they were! I’ve seen firsthand how Stonefields celebrates their couples with the best experience possible, and they honestly treat their guests like wedding royalty! As you scroll through this post, pay special attention to the thoughtful touches that the owners – Steve and Steph – have incorportated throughout the venue to ensure guests are well taken care of; clear umbrellas in case of rain, brand new patio furniture for lounging, and warm blankets for the evening in case it gets cold. They really have thought of everything, and these small details are some of the many reasons why Stonefields is one of my favourite wedding venues in Ottawa!

Britt and Evan; your friendship means so much to me and I’m so lucky to have met you! I’m thankful for the friends we share; for how easily our conversations flow (even after hours of being together in the car!!); and for our mutual love for this beautiful wedding industry!! I hope you’re seeing these photos for the first time on your backyard patio, surrounded by your beautiful flower gardens! Thank you both, and I hope you love this sneak peek from your day!! Much love! xo, A.

One of my favourite things about Stonefields is how all the main events of the wedding take place on the same property. Evan and the guys got ready in the 200-year old ‘Badchild Pub’, just a few yards away from Britt and the girls.

If you happen to think that Britt looks familiar, she might have been your bridal consultant at With Love Bridal!! I recently heard that one of my Fall 2018 brides found her dress at With Love, with Britt’s help as her consultant, which I think is SO special!!

The ceremony took place in front of the old farmhouse and the rain held off for the rest of the day (chalk that one up to a wedding miracle)!!

Sometimes couples write their own vows and their words make us all cry…this was Evan’s…plus plenty of his own personal humour that had us all wiping away tears of laughter!
